feeling fearless....

 yesterday my daughter and i had hair appointments. i needed to cover the "sparkle" in my hair- i am not willing to just let those grey sparkles show just yet; and she was getting some high, while i was cooking and she was in the chair, i was looking at gossip and hair mags, and decided, i needed bangs. spur of the moment....they just looked so darn cute. probably on everyone else; but, what the heck? if i really don't like them, hair will grow and that is why bobby pins were invented.

the other fearless thing i worked on yesterday, were the bridemaid's gifts i was asked to make.....remember those? i decided that although i was liking them....the flowers were too plain and needed something. i hate that temporary moment of fear, that frozen state for just a moment before you touch the next move to the paper- and so, i began. with more ink, and more glimmer mists; and i found myself liking them even more that before (thank goodness!) and asking myself, what else should i do? and so, yesterday....i was feeling fearless. i will post some of these new flowers for you this week; as the freezing rain is falling down- darn winter.....
